So sadly we seem to have LOST a bunch of the video from the last time we worked on the Corvette. But I did save a few small clips for the folks following us.
This last time we pulled apart the rear suspension...to get to the rear diff. Check out just how much of the rear diff is part of the suspension.
So unlike most cars, you can't just pull off the cover to get to the diff, need to pull the rear spring, tie rod ends, lower control arms, etc... THEN lower the diff out of the car and THEN you can split it. Wasn't too bad, the fluid looked like road tar though...VERY lemony.
While that was going on I decided to replace the busted O2 sensor (exhaust leak!! doesn't count!!) and I found this:
Not super shocking though, the ENTIRE CAR looked like this, so I have pretty much been re wiring the whole thing. Looking back I'm shocked I was able to drive it home. Not so shocked at how much didn't work on the car now...my guess is if I had sorted the wiring right from the start, the seats, gauges, etc..would have been fine.
Thanks for watching/reading.
